Day wise Itinerary

  • Day 1 :

    Arrival at Florence airport, where you will be met by your tour manager and transferred to Lucca, the most beautiful city in northern Tuscany and home of composer Giacomo Puccini. You’ll be staying at the Hotel Ilaria for 3 nights, located in the center of the historic district.

    Late afternoon free for your own explorations and shopping. Hotel bicycles are available for riding the 4 kilometer ramparts that encircle Lucca.

    At 7pm welcome meeting & aperitifs, followed by dinner at one of Lucca’s best restaurants.

    • Accommodation : Hotel Ilaria And Residenza Dell'Alba Hotel [ 4 Star ]
  • Day 2 :

    Lucca is rich in history – Roman origins, medieval and renaissance power and wealth. Our local guide will walk us through these eras, from Imperial times to the Lucca of the 1800’s, a century that began with the reign of Elisa Bonaparte. We’ll explore the massive walls and fortifications, the piazzas and palazzos of Lucca’s many transformations.

    Pisa was one of the four medieval powerhouse maritime republics, along with Genoa, Amalfi and Venice. They established trading posts and colonies throughout the Mediterranean. Pisans, being ruthless pirates, were widely feared and hated – giving rise to the expression, “better a death in the family than a Pisan at the door”. After a raid on Saracen Palermo they returned home with enough booty to initiate the Square of Miracles, the most amazing architectural complex in the world. This afternoon we’ll have a fantastic guided tour of the Pisa historic center, the Duomo and Baptistery and finish with a climb up the famous Leaning Tower.

    Evening free in Lucca.

  • Day 3 :

    The Via Francigena was the medieval pilgrim and tourist route from northern Europe to Rome. This morning we’ll walk 7 kilometers of it in the lovely hills above Lucca, through olive groves, vineyards and small hamlets. Mid-route we’ll stop to visit an olive oil mill at a 17th century farmhouse. A refreshing lunch with local wines at a village café will follow.

    This evening we’ll take in a Puccini concert at the Church of San Giovanni.

  • Day 4 :

    Carrara has been one of the world’s most famous mining centers since the time of Julius Caesar and still produces 800,000 tons a year of the same white marble that was the source of many of Michelangelo’s most famous creations. This morning we’ll have a fascinating guided tour of the quarries.

    The village of Colonnata, known for its unique production of lard, lies in the mountains high above Carrara and is where we’ll sample the local fare.

    Then, the spectacular Cinque Terre – we’ll be staying in Monterosso al Mare, the northernmost of the five villages. The Cinque Terre coastline was inhabited in ancient times by the Ligurian tribes, then settled by Greeks, conquered by the Romans, then dominated by Byzantines, Longobards and finally the city-state of Genoa. This land of rural fishermen and farmers, once accessible only by sea and by mule paths, now comprises the Cinque Terre National Park where we’ll spend our next two nights. The Porto Roca is a beautiful hotel perched on a cliff with spectacular views overlooking the Ligurian Sea.Carrara has been one of the world’s most famous mining centers since the time of Julius Caesar and still produces 800,000 tons a year of the same white marble that was the source of many of Michelangelo’s most famous creations.

    Transfer to Genoa. We’ll be staying two nights at the Hotel Bristol Palace.

    Genoa is an often overlooked destination because of its somewhat-hard-to-access location squeezed on a narrow stretch of land between the Apennine mountains and the Ligurian Sea. For many centuries this was one of the grand powers of Italy – an empire of seafarers, traders, bankers and shipbuilders. Its historical legacy was to leave behind a beautiful and intriguing city like none other on this marvelous peninsula as our local guide will illuminate this afternoon.

    Evening free to wander the maze of pedestrian lanes of the largest medieval city center of Europe.

    • Accommodation : Hotel Bristol Palace [ 4 Star ]

    The best of Genovese cuisine will be presented for our farewell dinner in the exquisite setting of an early 17th century palace.
